I’m a couple of days late this month. Sorry about that. Here’s our monthly round up of new releases.
Ballechin The Discovery Series #4: The Oloroso Sherry Casks
This is the fourth in a series of heavily peated releases from Edradour. Those guys are always doing interesting stuff. I haven’t tried any of the Ballechin releases but I’m intrigued.
Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection: Seasoned Oak
This year’s release from Woodford is finished in barrels that are made of staves left out to season for several years. These releases have been kind of hit or miss recently but I’m anxious to try it.
Evan Williams Single Barrel 2000 Vintage
It’s that time of year again for this annual release. Between this and Old Forrester Birthday Bourbon there’s always a new bourbon or two to try every year.
Old Rip Van Winkle Family Selection 23 year Old
Timeframe: Late November
Not a bourbon for the light of wallet. This special release comes in a Glencairn decanter with two special glasses to match.
Wild Turkey Tradition
This is a 14 year old limited edition coming from Wild Turkey. Previous limited editions included Tribute (which I didn’t get to try) in 2004 and American Spirit in 2007.
Sheep Dip Old Hebridean 1990 Vintage
I met the guys behind Sheep Dip back in 2007. I was pleasantly surprised by their offerings and I’m looking forward to this one too.
Isle of Jura Prophecy
Not much information on this one yet. I’ll keep you posted.
Glengoyne 12 Year Old
Glengoyne already has a cask strength 12 year old on the market but if you’re not a fan of cask strength bottlings then here’s something for you too.
That’s it for October!
